Our blackbookers to follow from racing on May 28 with the team assembling their runners to follow from the Belmont, Caulfield, Eagle Farm, Murray Bridge and Randwick cards.


Race 1 - Jurena Gold (fourth): Well bred gelding on debut that was spotting race experience to the trifecta, with the Top Of The Pops going 4/4 in the process. Only shaded for the fastest last 600m by the winner, but easily recorded the second-best closing splits when getting off heels late and finding the line. Should be the biggest improver from this.

Race 7 - Phenomenal Anomaly (fourth): A lightly raced stayer arriving off a third-up win and may well have prevailed again with a kinder gate here. With a cold ride from a wide draw, he was in restricted room from the 600m to the 400m when attempting to make ground off a muddling tempo and this was only start seven. He does have upside.


Race 5 - Little Stevie (seventh): This was the best seventh you will ever see, running in very restricted room from the top of the straight, only to rocket home last still under a vice grip. Convinced that she goes extremely close with a clear run with plenty still in locker as they crossed the line. With more luck in a similar race next start, Little Stevie will go close.

Race 8 - Visinari (second): The race was set-up for the eventual winner given this horse was three-wide the trip and Hosier needed it softer, so Sir Davy just had a beautiful smother in behind and had the best turn of foot. Loved the way that this grey stuck to his guns and still put a big margin on Hosier as they reached the line, given he was wide the trip.


Race 5 - Huetor (first): He had been improving all prep and although Zaaki was not at his best, he still put away a 2100m Group One and will be even better in the Q22 next start. Can’t see Maximal turning the tables nor anything else behind, and there is not much else around that is his class heading towards the race. Should put away the Q22 in style.

Race 7 - Alligator Blood (second): Is he back? For racing, let’s hope so because at his best he is an excitement machine and quite frankly, no one expected him to prove this competitive first-up off what has been a crazy 12-months. Looked healthy in the yard and will take great improvement from the run, so warrants respect whatever he contests next.


Race 4 - Lady De Lune (third): Bred to get over more ground, but this first starter backed-up a nice trial and should've finished much closer. After the handbrake was applied, she over-raced early and as the race started to take shape, she was held-up from the 600m to the 300m before going through her gears well. 1400m at start two will be ideal.

Race 10 - Unlaced (eighth): Although wary that she became costly after a good return, this mare was freshened right up ahead of this 1400m tilt and is generally more comfortable around 1600m. Held-up for outside runs approaching the 300m and then passing the 200m, she was then on heels the last 50m. Beaten 1.6 lengths and never got a look.


Race 7 - Enchanted Heart (fourth): While she did get in well with the claim, the first three home all had a race-fitness edge over her and off a wide run without cover, that just told late, although she was only beaten just over a length and the first four did clear out. This mare had trialled strongly twice ahead of this return and looks in for a good campaign.

Race 9 - Jojo Was A Man (fourth): A brilliant debut winner over 1500m, he was then inconsistent via his second prep, but looks set to work through the grades now. After sitting wide and recording a stylish fresh win, he was in a striking position before the first two cleared out and picked up again late (fastest last 200m). 1400m-1600m looks his range.
